July 6, 2012
Capt. Bob Douglas is an extraordinary man. Not only does he love [old] wooden boats (anything old in fact), he also loves his family, old trains, dogs and horses as well as any “stuff” remotely maritime. The Black Dog Tavern on Martha’s Vineyard houses but a tiny potion of Bob’s collection of maritime gear and photos. If ever you are in Vineyard Haven, you really should get breakfast or lunch there just so you can admire everything. And for every photo, name board, or maritime artifact in there, there are dozens more in his office, his house, his cement storage building, and aboard his vessels in the harbor. They are all genuine…no kitsch nautical decor or fakes.
